International week is comprised of a series of educational, cultural and recreational events designed to foster interest in our global community. The goal of International Week is to raise awareness among our staff and students about the breadth of international education opportunities and resources available to them at the University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus.
International week provides a platform from which we can enhance the understanding of internationalisation and the significant contribution it makes in our community and throughout the world. This project is hinged on the cooperation of a number of departments of the UWI as the mandate for internationalisation lies with all of us and it is imperative that we get university staff and students interested and actively involved in embracing this concept.
International week also aims to educate our campus community about today's most pressing issues that affect Caribbean citizens and provides exposure to work of those who have taken the initiative to address these issues and thus encourage our community to take an active role also. Overall we expect to foster global citizenship and enhance the intercultural climate of our campus.
We invite students, staff and faculty to join us in celebrating international week from the 05th to 09th October, 2015 as we explore Knowledge without Borders.
